How we build the best quality heat exchanger for you

1. Laser welding
2. TIG automated welding
3. Heat exchanger plate forming

1. Laser welding

Reduces deformation to a minimum

For the production of heat exchanger cells, BOSAL has years of experience using laser welding techniques. Our automated process combines:

  • High precision welding
  • High welding speed

High-speed welding results in low heat input, which reduces deformation of the product to a minimum and increases the product quality.

2. TIG automated welding

For the production of high-pressure heat exchangers, BOSAL ECI uses automated TIG welding robots for two main reasons:

Flexibility

  • It provides a flexible process - TIG robots can be programmed for every kind of heat exchanger.
  • It offers the possibility to scale up from prototype welding to serial production.


Quality

  • High-quality welds are achievable
  • It gives excellent repeatability

3. Heat exchanger plate forming

Predictable heat-transfer performance
The heat exchanger plate geometry is formed using the latest manufacturing techniques, which ensure a very tight dimensional tolerance profile. This results in a predictable heat transfer performance from batch to batch.

For both prototypes and large series
Both prototypes and large-series can be formed due to:

  • Short cycle times
  • Quick tool changeovers
